Red Sox take rubber game from Tigers

Pinch-runner Darnell McDonald scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth on a throwing error as the Red Sox overcame Jonathan Papelbon blowing a 3-0 lead in the ninth to beat the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park. The Red Sox took 2-of-3 from the Tigers and have won five-of-six. 

 

Adrian Beltre had two hits and drove in one while Clay Buchholz threw eight shutout innings as the Red Sox built a 3-0 lead. Buchholz outdueled Detroit ace Justin Verlander on the sunny afternoon, allowing just three hits before giving way to Papelbon with runners on first and second and none out in the ninth. Cabrera roped Papelbon's first pitch high off the center field wall for a two-run double before Jhonny Peralta tied it one out later with a seeing-eye single up the middle to score pinch-runner Don Kelly. 

 

But the Red Sox responded in the ninth with an infield single by Jed Lowrie, a walk to Eric...

Tito: Lowell decision 'up food chain from me'

The Mike Lowell drama continues at Fenway Park as the Red Sox and the veteran third baseman are in talks about his future with the team. Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Sunday morning that he and general manager Theo Epstein were talking at length following Saturday's game and were prepared to activate Lowell for today's game but the team backed off as they try to determine the best course of action with the 2007 World Series MVP.

 

"We were going to activate him," Francona said. "There were some conversations that is probably up the food chain from me a little bit that needs to continue to happen. Mikey's not active today. Those conversations I know will continue to happen but like I said, it's up the food chain a little from me."

Welker activated off PUP list

FOXBORO — Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio announced Sunday morning that wide receiver Wes Welker will come off the PUP list and return to practice immediately.

“Wes [Welker] will return to practice this morning,” Caserio said in a press conference prior to the start of Sunday morning’s practice. “He’s ready to go now. He’s deemed physically ready to go based on the tests and what our trainers have decided.”

Welker injured his left knee in January in the regular-season finale against the Texans, and underwent surgery in February. He was working on a limited basis with the team throughout spring practices, and was placed active/physically unable to perform list at the start of training camp.

In 14 games last season, Welker led the NFL with 123 receptions and finished second in receiving yards with 1,348. Since joining the Patriots prior to the 2007 season, he...

Lowell's status remains unresolved

Following his team's 5-4 victory over the Tigers on Saturday, Red Sox manager Terry Francona met with corner infielder Mike Lowell and general manager Theo Epstein to discuss the status of the 2007 World Series MVP.

 

Lowell has been on the disabled list since June 24 with a right hip strain. He recently concluded a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket in which he hit .500 with four homers in 22 at-bats. The Sox tried unsuccessfully to deal him at the trade deadline, but with no match to be had, the 36-year-old's role on the club is murky. That said, Francona said that the team was not yet ready to announce a roster move involving Lowell.

 

"It’s certainly something that needs to be addressed," said Francona. "We’ll probably talk about that a little bit more."
